Dark Port

Gaston, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: The PC port is a mess. With the correct unofficial patches it transforms into a fantastic action RPG's, even better than its console counterpart! It's a very difficult game, but once you get the hang of it, it's a blast. A joystick is strongly recommended to play, mouse+keyboard controls are abyssmal. Recommended to everyone that enjoy challenging action games with some mixture of RPG.

Dark Souls and games for windows live

Zachary, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: The games itself is incredibly fun and challenging, but games for windows live soured the experience by forcing me to play offline and deleting my save after i had gotten to the end of the game. This game is fine but i understand why people pirate games now because of it.

Awesome action RPG, terrible port

MUHAMMAD AHMAD KHAN, Amazon
25 January 2013
  • Summary: Going straight to the point: Pros=> One of the best combat systems since Demon's Souls, blocking, reposit,parrying etc etc etc :-) The one game you cannot relax in, one wrong move and you die, so prepare to die (bad pun alert) Extremely difficult Boses and mini-boses, as well as resulting reward you get for defeating them.

Not For Use Without Gamepad

Enano-mouse, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm not going to lie, this is a fun game...for someone with a game pad. I found myself searching frantically for the A button to be able to play through the first 10 minutes of the game. It's almost impossible to play this without having the game pad, so along with it, if you don't own a wired X BOX 360 remote, to order a cheap generic gamepad to use to avoid the headaches.

Windows 8 Technical Notes (3-star rating is a placeholder)

William M. Wilson, Amazon
20 October 2012
  • Summary: Quick info for those running this on a Windows 8 PC... (1) DSFix is basically mandatory. I was stunned at how terrible this looked on my monitor (1080p), but DSFix cleared it right up. Thank goodness. (2) This will install Games for Windows Live. However! The version installed through Steam is NOT the right version for Windows 8. Your game will crash on startup.

Worst console to PC port ever

TheMarkDavies, Play.com
5 October 2012
  • Conclusion: I have re-written my original review because it did not do justice to the game. I am a few hundred hours into the game and feel better placed to review than before. I have upped my score to a 3 because I still think some of the down sides outweigh the upsides. I understand this was the first port to PC for the designers so it is worth noting that. At the price you got a lot of gameplay for your money and the new game and player versus player can help to extend that.

Uno dei migliori giochi per il 2012 (Per il Pc)

Solkenar, Ciao
7 January 2013
  • Excerpt: La mia Opinione: Prima di comprarlo c'è bisogno di due "artefatti" antidelusione. 1. Una periferica di controllo (Joy pad, per questioni di compatibilità vi consiglio un joypad della xbox 360) 2. Scaricare DSfix, un software che permette di usare l'alta risoluzione,da questo sito: http://blog.metaclassofnil.com/?p=275 (il file in questione va messo nella cartella del gioco (in genere C:\NAMCO BANDAI Games\DarkSouls, consiglio di leggere il file ...
  • Pros: Lungo, difficile, intrigante, medioevale, multiplayer geniale !  MOSTRI MOSTRUOSI .
  • Cons: Bisogna scaricare una fix per vederlo bene, non per tutti, solo con joypad altrimenti evitate .

Excellent jeu mais portage au rabais à un prix toutefois intéressant

Crazydiamond, Amazon
21 October 2012
  • Summary: Le jeu est génial (pour peu qu'on soit un minimum masochiste, qu'est-ce que c'est dur!) et l'édition contient quelques bonus appréciables (un artbook sympa, la B.O., un dvd de commentaires à l'utilité discutable puisqu'on les trouve sur des sites classiques [et légaux] mais c'est toujours bon à prendre, des cartes postales et un poster). Je n'ai pas encore vu la partie extension mais ça semble intéressant.

Un gioco bello quanto orrifico!!!

irritato, Ciao
20 August 2012
  • Excerpt: ...al momento del lancio di Dark Souls, che si faceva notare per la bellezza e la cura grafica e delle ambientazioni, anche dal punto di vista sonoro. Da questo punto di vista, quindi, non sono molto soddisfatto, ma nel complesso è un bel gioco. Ci si può consolare, però, affrontando i nuovi boss, più forti e cattivi dei precedenti, ed esplorando le nuove vaste aree con le relative missioni che sono state aggiunte. PS Per chi deciderà di acquistare ...
  • Pros: Buon gioco
  • Cons: Grafica e risoluzioni migliorabili

Sur pc nécessite un patch tier, ensuite le jeu est très plaisant!

Cromigno, Amazon
3 August 2012
  • Summary: Les éditions collector avec livret, et autre sont les seuls prétextes pour acheter autre chose que du dématérialisé. Les rumeurs autour de ce jeu sont fondées! Heureusement qu'un patch a été créé par un internaute motivé pour que le jeu gagne en jouabilité sur pc.
